Talk about a trailblazer – somehow we don't think this rider cares much for mercy or restraint...
Today's Image of the Day is the devilishly dark Doom Warriors by Ãlvaro Calvo Escudero – what do you think?
As of the overall foreboding mood wasn't enough, that fierce flame-tinged colour palette really amplifies the sense of dread that Ãlvaro has managed to create here.
We're particularly impressed the attention to detail in the horse's armour plating – there's some great texture effects going on there!
There are many other great fantasy pieces to be found over in Ãlvaro's gallery – click here to take a look.
